    Tried to get some closer pictures to load but didn't have much luck. Not sure on their exact breeding but I can't wait to hatch some chicks from them this season!

    The male also has some white eyes and a white throat patch. Haven't seen him fan yet to get a better picture of him. And the ad for the hens said one was a blue and one was a cameo/blue mix. But it also just said the male was a blue. So I'm not sure on what their color combos may actually be

    The dark hen in back is so much darker than my regular IB hen and doesn't have the lighter feathers on her underside. More of a dark brown underside. What would you guess her color is?

    "The dark hen in back is so much darker than my regular IB hen" = spalding peahen !!!

    You have mix peahen so you will produce mix peachick !
    Peacock = Bleu black shoulder !


    X BLUE Black shoulder peahen = 100% BLUE Black shoulder peachicks .... very good work !

    X WHITE peahen = 100% BLUE peachicks split White .... bad work ... nobody need that !

    X BLUE spalding peahen = low %tage BLUE spalding peachicks ... bad work ! but if she is split Black shoulder (nobody know ! ) the chicks will be Blue Spalding Black shouler ... beautiful birds !!!
